Who Are We?

Chicago Real Estate Artists is a niche residential real estate brokerage that provides exceptional service at lower costs, focused on Chicago’s downtown core and lakefront areas – from the South Loop through Lakeview, including the Loop, West loop, Lincoln Park, the Gold Coast, River North and Wicker Park. ChicagoREA is active across all divisions of residential real estate – helping buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants with all transaction types, from Luxury home sales and leasing to REO purchases to property management.

Chicago Real Estate Artists was formed in 2011 by Top Producer® broker Michael Vrielink to be able to provide customized, flexible real estate solutions on a per client basis that have been frustratingly unavailable from traditional brokerages. In the open real estate environment that transactions occur, we feel clients should be able to create a purchasing or selling plan that is specifically tailored, and priced, according to their needs.

Susan T, North Center Buyer

I had a lot of questions, and even more that I didn't even know to ask, but Michael anticipated my every need and made the process (from day 1 to closing) truly enjoyable.

Emily D, 2011 Lincoln Park buyer

I doubt we would have found a place that fit us so well in so little time without Michael's assistance
